I Fear I'm Too Lazy These Days

I need to blog. The problem is that when I have time I have no motivation. When I'm motivated I have no time. I don't know where it all goes. I'm beginning to wish we'd never turned on the cable to have TV here. My husband keeps it on several hours a day. I can't read when it's on. I did get two books I need to review read last week, but I'm still trying to finish my post on flowers that bloom in early summer. I got Part 1 of Flowers that Bloom in Paso Robles in June published last week, but June ended before I could write Part 2. So I changed the title and I'm still working on it. I'm trying to cover all the flowers blooming in my garden, on my block and in the City Park. The most unusual flower that blooms for me in June is Clary Sage. No one else on my block has it. It has an odd smell that is not really pleasant. It's very noticeable when I brush against it when I'm watering or pulling weeds. I'd rather be smelling the star jasmine in the other flower bed. Have you ever seen or smelled a clary sage flower? What is your favorite or least favorite herb when it comes to smelling it.

Never smelled that flower that I can remember. In any event, I think we all have lull periods, especially when it comes to writing. I mean, at the end of the day I tend to think, "Well, it's not enough to pay the bills," and so sometimes it takes a back seat EVEN IF I have a strong passion to write. Either way, I hope you can find the time to both read AND write, and as far as that TV goes...ugh. I watch very little. My wife is the TV watcher in our house, but luckily my "man room" is toward the back of the house far away from the living room.

At the Templeton house I used to be able to isolate myself upstairs to write and we didn't have a TV. Now there's no internet connection there and no air conditioning, so to do anything productive I need to be here.
It is said that the clary sage is also known as "eye of Christ".It is a pity I haven't seen it.However I know another species of clary ,called red-rooted salvia (Latin name :Radix Salviae Milti orrhizae) whose roots are used for treating the coronary heart disease.
